In this episode architect, designer and researcher Arna Mačkić gives an insight in her personal history, coming from Bosnia to the Netherlands as refugee, and how this ‘journey’ influenced her professional development. Architecture and city planning often ignore the history of a specific city or site, or only communicate a certain aspect of it. In her work she wants to raise awareness for the complete story. Therefore she researches hidden or forgotten facts and rituals, and other sociological conditions. By implementing them in her work the history of the specific location becomes a fruitful tool for the future.
